Las Vegas gets lucky with Raiders

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis said: "My father always said, 'the greatness of the Raiders is in its future'".

PHOENIX (AP) - One day after approving the Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas, NFL owners got busy passing several rules changes and adopting resolutions they believe will speed the game and enhance player safety. So what becomes of Oakland's Coliseum complex and the city itself, once the Raiders depart?

As expected, it will also serve as the new home for Sin City's FBS team, a fact that UNLV's hierarchy was quick to point out and highlight in the hours after the vote was officially confirmed. It appears some competition is brewing.

Foley later added he didn't have a say, so he welcomes the Raiders to town. Will the red-hot Las Vegas market affect the Raiders' identity? It's one of the most impoverished and underserved areas in the city.

It didn't take long for that message to be forgotten.

"I've had a license for a seventh brothel near Las Vegas for some time now, but I was waiting for the right time to launch another house of debauchery", Hof said in a release, via Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Sun.

It sounds as though as the Raiders will need a temporary home prior to their new stadium opening in Las Vegas for the 2020 season.

"And I think that's important to remember, we're not taking the referee out of the equation", Blandino has said.

"I think it will speed up for the fans and the coaches, not having to wait for a timeout to find out what's going on", Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. Carr made $908,346 in base salary in 2016 and would have a cap number of more than $1.7 million in 2017, the final year of his rookie contact. "And, oh by the way, I've been a Raiders fan since Super Bowl XI, Oakland-Minnesota, first football game I watched from start to finish".

But public sentiment doesn't matter in places where lawmakers can make public money available without a public vote.

The expansion Golden Knights, on the other hand, will begin play this fall in a brand-new arena that was entirely privately funded (a 50/50 venture between MGM and AEG), and if just because of capacity and climate, an indoor 20,000-seat arena is going to host many more events, sports and otherwise, than a football stadium. It was constructed at a cost of $375 million.

The late Al Davis moved the Raiders to Los Angeles 35 years ago.

In the end, the NFL cartel got what its actions supported: the Chargers ended up in greater L.A.by exercising the first option that League owners had given them.

Kitty Ratcliffe, the president of the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission, said Rams games produced a net loss of $400,000 each year, per Schrotenboer.
